Week 6

Miami Dolphins (Away)

  • Date: Sunday, October 16
  • Time: 12 p.m. CT
  • TV: FOX

With four wins in their first five games, the Vikings will be riding high when they travel to Miami for this matchup with the Dolphins.

Miami has a ton of talent on their roster and new Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel could turn out to be one of the best hires of the 2022 offseason.

This has the makings of an exciting showdown, but Miami will bring Minnesota back down to Earth and hand them a loss.

Prediction: Vikings lose (4-2)

Week 7

  • Bye week

Week 8

Arizona Cardinals (Home)

  • Date: Sunday, October 30
  • Time: 12 p.m. CT
  • TV: FOX

After they let a win over the Cardinals slip out of their hands last season, the Vikings will be looking to make a statement when Arizona travels to the Twin Cities in 2022.

Getting a win over the Cardinals certainly isn’t going to be an easy task for Minnesota. Arizona’s playmakers on both sides of the ball like Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins, Marquise Brown, J.J. Watt, and Budda Baker will make life difficult for the Vikings in this contest.

In the end, Minnesota will get another opportunity to win the game by making a last-second field goal, and this time, the ball will sail through the uprights.

Prediction: Vikings win (5-2)
